A total of 32 dogs are now recovering after they were rescued from a Rockcastle County home last week.

Owner Linda Alcorn is facing animal neglect and cruelty charges. She's out on bail, but the county attorney says she could face more charges.

Dr. James Chism, who initially treated most of the animals, says it's the worse he'd seen in his 20 years of practice.

For safety concerns, most of the dogs are now in foster homes scattered across the state. Many are said to be barely holding on.

New details of the case are also surfacing after repots some of the dogs may have been stolen. Rescue crews say at least one owner was reunited with their dog following the raid.

The group URKY, United Rescues of Kentucky, is fronting the vet bills for the dogs. Representatives say they are in great need of donations. Donations can be made by going to the website, www.URKY.org.
